Philadelphia Phillies

Citizens Bank Park

Philadelphia, PA

In 1999, the Philadelphia Phillies decided they no longer wanted to share a stadium with the hometown football team. The goal for their new ballpark was to incorporate the best aspects of the great pre-war ballparks while providing modern amenities and making use of the latest technological advances in sports entertainment.  The 43,500-seat ballpark, located in the Philadelphia Sports Complex, creates an intimate, entertaining baseball experience for fans. The design, inspired by Philadelphia’s rich tradition of architecture and baseball, transforms an industrial site into an inviting streetscape.

"This is by far one of the best sports venues to play and to come watch a game. It’s because of this atmosphere that players wanna come here, or they wanna get out on the bus and get the hell out…Philly is not for weakness."
